So the lying, thieving, torturing, sadistic Republicans are using a scorched earth policy to cover their tracks. How predictable!

The name of the little restaurant in Matthews is Harvest Cafe. They make the best chocolate pie in the southeast part of Missouri, I think. I've lived in Matthews for 50 years.

I'm a lifetime resident of Sikeston, but I currently reside in St. Louis. I read the Standard Democrat every day via the internet. The front page of the Dec. 19 issue is among the most moving I've seen. I commend the local law enforcement for their "Operation Grinch" efforts. I also applaud Officer Franklin Adams for his sense of humor (he wore the Santa hat that said "Grinch" on it). I hope the Sikeston Police Department continues to make strides against those in our town who wish to live on the bad side of the law. Keep up the great work guys! Upon looking at the list of those arrested during Operation Grinch, I was somewhat bothered. Many of those taken in are not that much younger than myself, and many were former Sikeston High School athletes. Some of them led Sikeston to many spirited victories on the court and/or field. It's very disconcerting to see so much talent go down the drain and wind up in jail - when sports could have provided these young men and women the opportunity to earn a college degree with their skills. Rather than put forth some hard work and effort, they stuck to their lazy ways and ended up dealing drugs. It's a damn shame when someone is able to better themselves, yet they do not take it of themselves to do so.

Is there anybody out there who can tell us what Rascal Flatts real name is.

That is the name of the group, not just one singer. Members of the group are Gary LeVox, Jay DeMarcus and Joe Don Rooney.
